Rayman Origins will be free on PC later this month

Rayman Origins probably should have been bigger than it was. Ubisoft noted that the game was "profitable," but refrained from calling it a rip-roaring sales success, and only pushed 50,000 units in its first month of release. Even so, it li...   read

PC Port Report: Aladdin, The Lion King, and The Jungle Book

Okay, cards on the table: I'm 21 years old and my first video game console was a Wii, purchased back in 2007. I've spent the better part of a decade making my way back through gaming's short but storied history. The 16-bit era is still on m...   read

Sometimes you just have to let your inner 12-year-old out, and today is one of those days. Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 have unveiled new bosses Asrock and Jibryll, and the former speaks to the aforementioned immature spirit animal. Maybe I...   read

It looks like Inside will hit PS4 before long

Playdead's unnerving adventure Inside is available on Xbox One and PC, but if you've been waiting for a PlayStation 4 port out of necessity or simply platform preference, you shouldn't need to remain patient for much longer. A Trophy list f...   read

This PS4 Trophy list suggests Ape Escape 2 isn't far off

Last year, we reported on a ratings board listing for a PlayStation 4 re-release of Ape Escape 2. It still hasn't come out! Given this recent Trophy list for the port, though, it likely isn't too far off. Maybe if I keep telling myself that...   read
